Freedom on the Delaware River: The Maritime Underground Railroad.


*Online Zoom Event

-led by walking artist Ken Johnston

For enslaved Africans, Philadelphia was the threshold of freedom, and the nearby Delaware River was an important escape route. While most commercial ship traffic on the Delaware River traveled downstream, the Underground Railroad flowed in reverse. Tune in to learn more about Ken’s research into the river’s role helping people escape from slavery, and his artistic process for his project Up The Creek in Frankford next week.
